These EASY Keto Salmon Patties make a great dinner on their own but are also delicious on salads or used as a burger!

So, I know I’m supposed to say things about this recipe that will make your mouth water and delight your taste buds, but I have a really funny/gross story involving salmon patties that I’m going to share with you instead.

When I was in college my roommate came back from spring break with a cooler full of goodies his family had sent back with him.  Me, being a kind and considerate roommate with ulterior motives of earning a share of the goodies helped him put it all away. When I came across a red topped tupperware container with what looked like cookies and faded sharpie across the top that looked to me like it spelled out “snickerdoodle”.  So naturally I put it on a shelf in the pantry. Living with 3 other guys we soon filled up the pantry with other nutritious offerings from a trip to Sam’s Club such as bulk packages of tortilla chips, cheese puffs, and easy mac.  

Here is where it gets gross…remember the “cookies” were put in the back of the pantry right after spring break.  That August, two of us moved to a smaller place and while we were cleaning we came across the red topped tupperware.  I popped the top off in order to toss the moldy contents into the trash. The smell that overtook my nostrils was the most horrendous odor imaginable, take the worst smell you’ve ever smelled and times it by 10.  Within a minute everyone in the apartment was gagging, holding back the urge to puke, and fighting our way towards the reprieve of fresh air only the balcony could provide.

It was at least ten minutes before anyone of us was willing to go back in the apartment, and when we did the smell was still as nauseating as before.  It wasn’t until two days with the windows open and about a gallon of febreeze that the smell seemed to finally fade away entirely.

Now for what you came for…let’s chat about this recipe for Keto Salmon Patties.

Can I freeze these Keto Salmon Patties?

Yes! Here’s what I would do. Place a piece of parchment onto a sheet pan and place the uncooked patties on the tray. Freeze for 1-2 hours then transfer to a freezer safe container.

To cook from frozen, cook with a bit of oil in a skillet over medium heat until browned on each side and cooked through.

Is salmon healthy?

Maybe one of the healthiest foods you could choose, salmon is packed with nutrients and healthy Omega 3 fatty acids that protect your heart, brain, and give you energy!

Can I used canned salmon for these Keto Salmon Patties?

Yes, you can. I you want to make it easier on yourself buy boneless and skinless canned salmon. I know the packing says you can eat the little tiny bones and I have in the past but I did not find it fun nor appetizing.

If you’re using fresh cooked salmon just flake it into small pieces.
